Viewers have recently seen Bianca (Patsy Palmer) get a chance at happiness after returning to Albert Square with Terry (Terry Alderton) as her new man.

In early December, however, Nikki arrives in Walford unexpectedly and her presence could pose a threat to Bianca.

Nikki is an air hostess and is described as "beautiful, charming and utterly lovely to Bianca".

Despite this, Bianca feels that Nikki isn't all that she seems - especially as she has already seen off a few of Terry's past girlfriends.

Nikki will begin interfering with Bianca's plans over the festive period, and things come to a head over Christmas dinner at the Jackson/Spraggan household.

Wilde commented: "I am so excited to be joining EastEnders. It's my first acting role and what an amazing role it is!

"Nikki causes a lot of drama and gets a very frosty reception from Bianca. I'm really enjoying playing her and working with such excellent actors, including Patsy Palmer and Terry Alderton. Patsy and I have some great scenes together and I can't wait for everyone to see them."

Nikki's first appearance will air in an hour-long episode on Monday, December 2 at 8pm on BBC One.
